This year’s theme is Roppongi, Art Playground – Let’s run around and try things out! with contemporary artist Kohei Nawa appointed for the main program. Don’t miss the opportunity to see what Mr. Nawa, who has gained much international acclaim for his broad range of activities, brings to Roppongi.
The main graphic image expressing this year’s theme has been designed by groovisions, a group active in various fields, and their design will be used as the icon for Roppongi Art Night 2016.
Roppongi Art Night 2016
Roppongi Art Night is a one-night celebration of art staged in the district of Roppongi. A diverse range of works including not only artworks but also design, music, video and performance pieces are dotted around the Roppongi neighborhood with its high concentration of retail stores and cultural institutions, creating an extraordinary experience, while proposing a lifestyle that celebrates the enjoyment of art in everyday living. Bringing art and street together as one will also enhance the image of Roppongi as a cultural hub, and offer a trailblazing example of neighborhood initiative within the vast metropolis of Tokyo. Roppongi Art Night will continue to develop as the capital’s premier art festival.
